Thinking of you...

Hello everyone and happy day-before-Thanksgiving to you! I have a card I'd like to share with you. Usually I make cards for a challenge, but not this one. There is no sketch, no color challenge. Just a card I made to give to a good friend.


the inside:


I have a friend who used to live next door to me, before they bought another house and moved last year. We still keep in touch, but not nearly as often as we'd like. They have quite the full plate: a new house that they are renovating/remodeling; both have full time jobs; two busy kids; a dog; her Father-in-Law living with them now (he's has Dementia and can't live on his own.), hosting Thanksgiving this year. See? Alot on their plate. To add to that, Mark had what he thought was a bad virus which was causing his throat to swell. Since the medication he was taking wasn't working, he went in for an MRI. That's when they found he had a tumor in his throat. He's in the hospital now and they are going over with the doctor's what can be done. I am waiting for more information from them. I wanted to make Mark and Kelly a card to let them know that Andy and I are thinking of them and that they are in our prayers. Any additional prayers from you would be welcome!

Thanks for listening and for sending out your good thoughts and prayers to a great family!

Chris ☺

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
